The Harbours Bill, 1924, has been read a second time. If the House desires that its concluding stages should be taken, the simplest way would be to move the suspension of the Standing Orders to enable this and these other Bills to be put through their remaining stages.
APPROPRIATION BILL, 1924—SECOND STAGE. - STATE HARBOURS BILL.—FINAL STAGES.
I think it is evident that we will have to meet to-morrow, and that being so, it would be more convenient to have the remaining stages of these Bills taken to-morrow.
I do not see that it is so plain that we will have to sit to-morrow if we sit up to a convenient hour this evening. First of all, what is the wish of the Seanad with regard to the Harbours Bill, 1924? That Bill was referred to a Select Committee.
Yes, it was before a Joint Committee of both Houses.
It has already been thrashed out before a Joint Committee of both Houses, and I trust the Seanad will put it through its remaining stages.
I move the suspension of the Standing Orders in order to allow the further stages of the State Harbours Bill to be taken.
I beg to second the motion.
